None of the available PDF rendering software does a good job of zooming, panning, or cropping, and the programming required to try does use more power, than a simple mobi or epub file.

It's perfect for the chosen size screen, but I forgot to tell you which reader I wanted to read your book on... So what size will you chose? Even reflowable PDFs don't always work well.

In general, I prefer epub - it's not perfect, but it is more easily adaptable.
